The effect of different weaning ages on growth and breeding cost of Brown-Swiss calves



The effect of different weaning ages on growth and breeding cost of Brown-Swiss calves



Hayvanclk Arastirma Dergisi 12(2): 1-8



24 male and 23 female calves were weaned and grouped as follows: Group 1 (weaned at 4 weeks), Group 2 (weaned at 6 weeks), and Group 3 (weaned at 8 weeks). Data were collected from all calves from birth until six months of age. Total weight gains determined between birth and six months of age for the groups were 150.94+or-2.69, 150.93+or-2.83, 147.53+or-2.75 kg and daily liveweight gain averages were 0.837+or-0.01, 0.840+or-0.01, and 0.819+or-0.01 kg respectively.
